the withdrawal, which was we agreed with the obama administration. let's have a status of forces agreement to make sure that we secure our gains. the vice president was put in charge of those negotiations by president obama. and he failed to get the agreement. we don't have a status of force agreement because they failed to get one. that's what we are talking about. and when it comes to our veterans, we owe them a great debt of gratitude for what they have done for us, including your son, beau. but we also want to make sure that we don't lose the things that we fought so hard to get. with respect to afghanistan, the 2014 deadline, we agree with the 2014 transition. but what we also want to do is make sure that we're not projecting weakness abroad, and that's what's happening here. this benghazi issue would be a tragedy in and of itself, but unfortunately it's indicative of a broader problem, and that is what we are watching on our tv screens is the unraveling of the obama foreign policy. which is making it more chaotic and us less safe. >> i just want to talk to you about right in the midd
elect somebody who does not have a plan, will be an echo of the obama administration. or somebody who will continue to be an independent voice for arizona. i would appreciate your vote. >> thank you for your opening statements. let's fine tune things a little bit here. why you and not him? >> happy to have the opportunity. no, my life has been one that has been best exemplified by the infrastructure of opportunity that this nation has. i am a high-school dropout from an immigrant family. i have prospered because of this great infrastructure of opportunity in our nation. i have been able to serve my country as a physician, a police officer, as a professor, as a teacher. and doing all of those things has allowed me to appreciate how great this nation is. what i want to do is make sure we can preserve this infrastructure of opportunity so every kid can get that american dream. >> what you and not him? >> that is exactly it. that opportunity will not exist unless we get a hold of this $16 trillion debt. that is why we have to have somebody who has a record, who is willing to stand up for
maneuvering going on in this administration. look, president obama clearly can not run on the economy so he is trying to run on national security issues by claiming we have al qaeda back on its heels. we now know that is not true. so now he is really in a box because i think a lot of people suspect, that all of these lies and the deceit and the cover-up that is now emerging has been essentially political because this is the only thing that he can run on. look, it's always the cover-up and never the original crime that gets these politicians into trouble. when i worked with president nixon in the early 1990s and the whitewater scandal was blowing up i remember president nixon said to me why did i go to the damn fire if nobody will ever learn from watergate and my mistakes. they never learn, alisyn. it is the same pattern over and over again. this has the potential to be fatal to barack obama's re-election effort. alisyn: that's a great quote, monica. thanks so much sharing that with us working with president nixon. >> thank you. bill: the mother of one of the victims murdered in libya now sp
in hempstead, new york. >>> there are new questions today about what the obama administration knew about the terror attack in benghazi compared to what it then told the american people. state department officials grilled by lawmakers on the response to the deadly attack on september 11th that claimed the lives of four americans. ambassador chris stevens, two navy seals there to protect him and a state department staffer. catherine herridge is live in washington. catherine, tell us more what he learned yesterday. >> reporter: thank you, allison and good morning. lawmakers are questioning whether the president's political agenda drove to security situation on the ground that led to the death of four americans. i would note the seals were not there to protect the ambassador. they were there to on a separate mission. as fox reported there was no demonstration at the consulate in benghazi fanned youtube video was not the reason for. that point was made abundantly clear at hearing. >> there were no protest. state department and others have that video. speaking of video, the one in california m
's ridiculously wrong it's beyond belief. >> greg: i want to compliment the obama administration for finding someone who makes debbie wa waserman schultz look competent. >> andrea: we are almost a month out from the original terrorist attack finally, president obama says i'll fix it in a calm way. you say it's not lie or coverup. is it incompetence? if it's incompetence -- >> dana: if they throw the "lie" word about romney and proposal for tax reform. but you can't actually look at the videos that prove that they were lying. ambassador stevens' remains are next to them, arriving in dover, they're blaming a video they knew, or should have known by that time, either the intelligence system is incredibly incompetent or somebody -- >> bobsomebody is covering it u. >> bob: you believe that? >> dana: last night, bret baier had a timeline. if you watch, that you could not walk away with any other conclusion. >> eric: hannity last night, set up jay carney saying i didn't say that. then a sound bite of him saying exactly that. >> dana: coming up, the obama campaign strategy. is it to taint mitt romne
's got to find some way to blunt it and he's got it make a stronger case fort obama administration and two, a stronger case against mitt romney than barak obama did last week. >> shep: is it your sense that this is turning on the national scale and it is in the big three on the east coast, but what's up with ohio? >> well, it's interesting. ohio -- actually a few states in the midwest. i don't think it's just ohio. wisconsin, look at iowa. part of it may be that it's the rust belt. certainly in the case of ohio is one out of eight jobs depends on the automobile industry and so people there remember the obama bailout of the auto industry and that helps a lot. there may be some regional differences. i don't think it's just one state. on the other hand, i do believe a rising tide lifts all boats. if romney starts to build support around the country, it will also increase in ohio and iowa and wisconsin states that are a little more resistance. conversely if he starts to sink, you'll see that in the swing states as well as the national polls. >> shep: sometimes it matters largely on how
criticized the foreign policy of the obama administration but through all accounts and by all accounts has not given specifics on what his foreign policy. so beyond libya and any criticism, if you criticize you've got to -- >> some good points back by joeb. >> what is your plan? >> tense-filled moment. >> yes, chris. >> tamron, you hit it right on the head. vice president biden, what he's got to do is really hold congressman ryan's feet to the fire. he's got to make him answer the questions that they have not had to answer and they didn't answer in the first presidential debate. really put him on the defensive about it and don't let it go. you'll know how this debate is going within the first five, ten minutes in terms of how vice president biden comes out. >> all right. thank you very much. chris kofinis, mr. steele, someone said gene. i feel like the luckiest woman in the world. >> lucky guy. >> still ahead, governor romney's shifting stance on abortion. >> i think i've said time and again i'm a pro life candidate. i'll be a pro life president. >> so will the vp candidates be asked about
, by not giving them as much information as we thought. he blamed all the false statements of the obama administration on the intelligence community and seemed to raise questions about the confidence of the intelligence community and in a discussion about iran, he said, we will know when they go to -- when they go to a break-out for the bomb. it seems to me, there is major tension between those two statements on the one hand, suggesting they are not competent enough to know what happened on the ground in libya but saying they will know for sure if iran decides to go for the bomb. >> on domestic policy, we heard joe biden do what his boss, barack obama, did not, hammer the 47% comoant that mitt romney said and was talking about how mitt romney believes that 30% of the american people are takers -- that's my mom, that's my dad, he sadism the obama campaign has to be very happy with what biden did there. i mean, i was surprised that the president didn't do it in the last debate. i think biden made a lot of strong points, i just don't know where -- did women find him likeable. the other thi
to be compelled to do anything under obama care, ryan said why is that they're suing the administration? that is almost on a side that was lost and then, it was over by the next question. but if you put them together, and you end up with television where you saw the demeanor the vice president had in regards to ryan, i think that undid the advantage in rhetoric that he had in carrying the debate. it was so disrespectful. i agree with chris wallace. it was sort of almost unprecedented and kond sending. i think in the end, if television, you lose. >> charles, do you think that this debate tonight moved the needle at all? >> i don't. the reason is that whether you decide that vice president won or lost, people don't end up in the booth voting for number two. so if you like one, he was likeable. the other wasn't. i don't think there was an affect on the vote. the question is will it affect the debate that's are coming up? that is the real heavy weight stuff between obama and romney. and i think that the objective, perhaps one advantage is that biden lay down is that in the actual arguments
this again tonight, talked about the weakness, talked about apology from the obama administration. was that really appropriate, right in the middle of the crisis? >> on that same day, the obama administration had the exact same position. let's recall that they disavowed their own statement that they put up earlier in the day in cairo. we had the same position. it's never too early to speak out for our values. we should have spoken out right away when the green revolution was up and starting when the mullahs in iran were attacking their people. we should not have called bashar assad a reformer when he was turning his russian-provided guns on his own people. we should always stand up for peace, for democracy, for individual rights. and we should not be imposing these devastating defense cuts because what that does, when we equivocate on our values, when we show -- >> am i going to get anything to say here? >> it projects weakness, when we look weak, our adversaries are able to attack us -- >> that's a bunch of mularkey. >> why is that so? >> not a single thing he said is accurate. >
